A MESSAGE FOR THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES

The whole world feels uncertain right now, but that doesn’t have to stop you from building something phenomenal. I’m still speaking live with companies around the world right from home—yup, the same one I built with my kids by watching YouTube videos. You’ll feel the gritty reality of not only taking on something everyone says is impossible, but succeeding at it. This is motivation with a takeaway for huge action.
 
Yes, things have changed, but we can all keep building.

QUICK KEYNOTE TOPIC OVERVIEW

01 / FOR EVERYONE
RISE & RESILIENCE - THE TRUE STORY

Cara Brookins didn’t know how to build a house. But when she and her four children escaped an abusive marriage, she decided to use YouTube tutorials to build one. Fueled by a strong will to rebuild their lives, Cara and her kids mixed the concrete, raised the walls, even ran the plumbing and gas lines.

In this motivational talk, Cara shares behind the scenes disasters and victories that show how an unlikely team can reach past doubts and fears to do the extraordinary. This story of grit and determination pushes audiences to tackle hard things.


 
 
02 / FOR LEADERS & TEAMS
BUILD UNSTOPPABLE TEAMS

When Cara Brookins decided to build a house with her four young children by watching YouTube tutorials, she knew it was going to take a brand-new leadership strategy. But she never expected the same techniques to become the driving force for every team she worked with.

Using stories from her unconventional construction site, Cara shares tactics to blend an imperfect mix of personalities, talents, and temperaments into cohesive, unstoppable teams. These strategies apply to every level of your organization, and will change the way you live and work.


 
 
03 / FOR WOMEN'S GROUPS
BUILD THE LIFE YOU WANT

Cara Brookins doesn’t look like someone who would build a house, but after she escaped an abusive marriage she knew this unconventional move was the only way should could change the direction of her life.

Building a house with her four kids forced Cara to step into her confidence (or more literally into steel-toed boots), and with her proven strategies you can step into your confidence too. You don’t have to stay stuck in the same old loop, because you already have the power to shatter the stereotypes and build something bigger. This is more than motivation; this is self-empowerment that will take you exactly where you want to be.


 
 
04 / PRODUCTIVITY
TAKE ACTION

Everyone’s schedules are overwhelmed with demands today. We work longer hours at the office and face higher demands at home. We’re always connected, always on, and in a constant state of having too much to do. Instead of achieving higher rates of productivity, we spend more time feeling stuck, uncertain, and unable to take the next step toward our target.

Cara’s strategies from the construction site will simplify the way you tackle the hard things in front of you. Learn to take action, leverage failures, and achieve extraordinary goals.
